Work progressing well on Hurstpierpoint Community Hub

Local residents had their first chance to see how work is progressing on the new Hurstpierpoint Community Hub on Friday 14 December.

The former Ex Serviceman’s Club at Court Bushes Recreation Ground has been empty since December 2017 and later that month a serious fire destroyed the interior of the building.

Mid Sussex District Council is working with Hurstpierpoint Parish Council and local community groups to bring the building back into use as a community facility.

The new community building will be a flexible space that can be used in different ways by local community groups.

A large hall area will be available for social functions like wedding receptions and birthday parties, as a space for social groups to meet or as a venue for positive activities like exercise classes. An area will be provided for community meetings to be held and it is hoped that a nursery provider will use the space to provide local childcare for nearby families.

Work is progressing well and the new community hub is expected to be ready to use in spring 2019.
